TNS Emor analyst Aivar Voog, who is involved in the monthly political party popularity poll in Estonia, said few young people have a party preference and will be influenced mostly by election campaign messages.

“Their (16-year-olds) political attitudes are unstable,” he told ETV yesterday, after the Cabinet gave its backing to a bill which would lower the voting age to 16 in local elections.

He said younger people do not know or want to define themselves politically, and no political party will gain an edge with the demographic group.

MPs from three out of the four parliamentary parties have supported the bill, which will also need the approval of the next Parliament, as changes to the Constitution are needed.
